Loaned out to FC Nantes for the season in order to get some first-team football, Matt Miazga’s season started rather well.
A regular, he was playing a lot of football, but then, everything changed very quickly.
The manager was sacked and Vahid Halilhodzic took over, and during the new coach’s first game in charge, Miazga probably had one of the worst games of his career.
The Chelsea defender was at fault for two of Bordeaux’s three goals in a 3-0 loss, and he was swiftly taken out of the first-team.
Since then, he’s not even been in match day squads, and a return to Stamford Bridge in January is very much on the cards.
This is what 20 Minutes report on Friday, claiming the player is now ‘questioning his Nantes future’ despite previously saying he was planning on finishing the season with the Ligue 1 side.
The newspaper also claim Christophe Lollichon and Eddie Newton (the man in charge of loans at Chelsea) travelled down to France, who admitted their 23-year-old wasn’t in the best of situations, and a new meeting is expected to take place in the next couple of weeks.
As for if an early return is possible, the goalkeeping coach revealed it was as long as all parties agreed to it, and, as things stand, that’s something Miazga would be open to.
